Series writer Gail Simone, best known for her critically-acclaimed works with Wonder Woman, Birds of Prey, and Batgirl, is no stranger to writing strong female leads. In a Kotaku interview with Simone, she stated that she was looking to explore Lara's adventures in a way that the first game couldn't.
The story is set to begin a few weeks after the events of the game, and looks like it should act as the tie-in between Tomb Raider and its inevitable sequel.
"It will be Tomb Raider canon, and lead DIRECTLY into the sequel. This is what got me excited; we get to be part of Lara Croft history."
